    the mechanism of street-level hybrids etc etc may not be working anymore in London, but it seems to have been working in Lisbon this past decade - the same postcolonial chickens coming home to roost phenomenon (first and second generation African immigrants mostly from Angola and Cape Verde), the same syndrome of rude energy coming out of the bairros to vitalize and warp house / techno templates

    some of it sounds a bit like funky

    In these little circles you get a fusing of similar tastes, a coalescing, and then it hits the mainstream and becomes diluted and diffused. Or it just never takes off all that much. (funky)

    Well yeah it's why i was a bit moody yesterday, don't worry we're all good but i did warn luka that whilst this thread was funny it could have gone a bit too far... a lesson to barry's inner 16-year-old. you're not gonna date ivancka trump like Quincy so don't try!

    As for the innovation debate, i think we need to differentiate between a micro and a macro innovation. Drill was undoubtedly innovative in a 2010s context, but it skirted closer to a micro as opposed to a macro innovation. in fact maybe one could even say that jungle and acid house were the last real macro innovations. things that literally rewrote the vocabulary of music. don't want people to think I don't like drill, I do...

    Uhm I mean that's not just influenced it's sampling that one Mala tune. Because it was done so elsewhere:

    Yeah but that's irrelevant because nobody was trying to emulate Game in the 2010s. That's a "Tree falling in a forest with nobody to hear it" moment.

    Abra Cadabra ruined drill long before Headie did. He didn't last at all but it was the clear tumor point where rot started to truly manifest.

    Headie if anything extended it as a genre but likewise demonstrated there was a rapidly forming ceiling.

    “It was Tottenham at home. I thought please don’t go on about Tottenham, we all know what Tottenham is about, they are nice and tidy but we’ll fucking do them. He came in and said: ‘Lads, it’s Tottenham’, and that was it. Brilliant.”

    coming back on the bus now, there was a bloke who spoke just like headio one and i thought it can't be a coincidence that these genre's are killed by people who can't rap. there's something inherent in the can't-rapiness that does it. either it's about them compensating for inability to rap via marketing or "being cleaver" or there's something accessible to students about someone not rapping well. might literally be the thing of them not talking so quick, gives people time to understand.
